lyrics

A whisper at my door
But I would not let it in
A voice came, faint from time
A lost ghost, and a faded chime
I wouldn't speak and I would not let it in 

It told of tender age and the passing of pain
Of silent years, the redemption of rain.
And through those tracks of time
I saw the aching lines
A haunted life of mine
 

My hand drew back the bolt
And the darkness tiptoed through
A murmur: “can’t you see?
Reach through the night and speak with me
I’m waiting, and I long to talk to you”
 
It sang of solace, soothing, a balm to ease tears
Of wounds wiped clean and the wisdom of years
And soaked in sound and sign
I saw the dreamless shrine
And healed this life of mine


This is the struggle, this is the strife
I'll cleanse the distress from what's left of this life
I will not falter, I will not fail
I'm under your breath, so that death won't prevail
This is the struggle, this is the strife
I'll cleanse the distress from what's left of this life
